About the Author

Claudia Morris is an Elementary Teacher in New York City. She has a Masters Degree in Education and is currently pursuing a Doctorate Degree in Curriculum, Teaching, and Assessments.

Ms. Morris is the creator, author, and illustrator of the "Where is Dusty?' book series. These books feature Dusty on many adventures on the farm, in the circus, in the city, and many more future trips.

My inspiration to write books about this mouse came about when I was living in Manhattan. I used to take the subway daily and was petrified of the sights I would see on the tracks. The mice were everywhere and were not afraid to show their faces. The final straw was when I came face to face with a mouse at a private daycare. This mouse was determine to spend the day with me. He was relentless and made it known that he was not going to "give up" on making his presence known.

Writing has always been a long time hobby and passion for me and after a lot of contemplation, the inspiration came to me, "write a children's book series featuring a mouse named Dusty." I decided to give Dusty human characteristics to help me to overcome my fear.
These books will feature Dusty in many adventures while delivering thought provoking messages, encouraging child literacy, basic vocabulary, and comprehension skills.
Beginning early language instruction sets the stage for children to develop advanced levels of proficiency in reading and language development. Studies have shown repeatedly that early language development increases critical thinking skills, creativity, and flexibility of the mind in young children.
In today's growing global economy it is important to teach our children to become better readers by developing these skills at an early age. The intention is not to write another illustrated book series featuring animals, but to truly captivate and engage people with vividly appealing stories, set within unique cultural environments to promote learning and curiosity. I firmly believe that once you realize where your true passions are, you should follow your dream.
